Managers Reaction 

Wales captain Gareth Bale: “I don’t need to send a message, honestly. It’s a waste of my time. It’s disgusting and they should also be ashamed of themselves. I’m not fussed. End of. It was a massive game. We knew coming into it how big a game it was and we had to perform. We had to dig deep and look at our experience in big games and it’s a perfect scenario. I had some cramp at the end which I guess is normal but I’ll run into the ground for this country and we all did that tonight.”

It’s fantastic. Half the job is done. The good thing now is that we can enjoy tonight because the game is in June. Still another very tough game against either Scotland or Ukraine and we’ll be ready for that when it comes.”
